School Pictures

School Pictures
We got school pictures from two of our grandchildren a few days ago. Kara’s in the 5th Grade and Zachary in the 2nd Grade. I thought these were good pictures.

I remember getting school pictures when I was in school. One year when I was young I had sore with a scab real close to my nose. And, guess what… it was school picture day.

"Clean your nose!" they said.

Before they took my picture they told me I needed to clean my nose. I told them it was a scab. Well, they laughed a little and took my picture anyway. It was awful. Here I was in the picture looking like I had a big booger hanging out of my nose! I don’t think Mom passed many of those out to the relatives, or to anyone. Thank goodness!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
There was a joke about an who Uncle died… He left several hundred clocks to a niece, and they said she stayed busy for months winding up the estate.

He ran an upholstery business and the room where he did the work was filled with clocks. Clocks of all sizes and shapes were on shelves and all around the walls. And every clock had a different time.

He grinned back at me and said, “What time do you want it to be?”

We miss Marshall.

Joke of the Day

After suffering through years of his wife's awful coffee, the man spat it out and took the coffee maker to his lawyer.

Dropping it on the attorney's desk, the man growled, "Here they are!"

"Here are what?" the startled lawyer asked.

"Grounds for Divorce."

I think my worst school picture was from the 7th grade. Dorothy Hamill haircut, braces and pimples and these ugly multicolored plastic glasses.

I think my worst school photo had to be 8th and 9th grade. I won't even go into details but suffice it to say the haircut my mother thought was soooo cute, wasn't. I cringe when I see those photos, so I boycotted the next two years and did not have my photo taken. Glad my Senior photo turned out decent, lol.
